I served at NAS Cecil Field from 68 to 70 and was attached to VC-4 DragonFlyers. I was lucky to serve as an aircrewman (flight skins sure helped the pay check). I have many fond memories of Cecil Field and being in VC-4. Now that it is 44 years later I wished 68 t0 70 would have lasted longer. S2 was a great plane to fly in.

Enjoyed the TS-2A while pilot training in VT-31, Summer/1969, until overheated brakes caused by the long taxi from the duty to the squadron resulted in much smoke and an evacuation order from the instructor. Emergency procedure at the time took us out the crew overhead escape hatch, across the wing with a jump to tarmac to clear the area. Two broken feet resulted. Other similar evacs must have caused injuries as I heard possible NATOPS changes were being considered. Wonder if it ever happened.

I worked on the flight line as the trouble shooter for VC 10 or as it was sometimes called VCF 10. We had S 2 and F 8 aircraft. Our S 2 were used mainly for target tow, but secondly for us, Rest and relaxtion to Florida and Panama and other locations. I was stationed there from Sept. 1972 to March 1974. Our S 2 aircraft were easy to work on and maintenance friendly.

A friend of mine served with the VS-34 SQUADRONDS, during the Vietnam War,and I was checking out your site. I found this very interesting. Thank you for your hard work. I was a combat rto with the 199th LIGHT INFANTRY 2/3rd Alpha Co. My tour was 10/68 to 1/70,being an rto I spoke with many pilots,that saved my butt,and I sure appreciated you MEN. Thank you again.

I was station at NAS Glynco and was an AMS2 when I left! I worked on the Jet Line First with F-8 then the T-33A and When the two jet lines merged in 1969 we had both the 33 and the T-39. I was stationed at Glynco from Dec 27,1967 to March 15,1971 (approx)I used to watch the line guys working on the S2F and was amazed how anyone could put up with the smells and all the noise!!! We called them on the flight line the slicer/dicers I only fly in one ,once a short hop around the area to check out some maintenance issue,a real shaker.It was a very intersting time ,the war was winding down and we knew it was just a matter of time before all the aircraft we worked on would be replaced. In Dec. of 1970 the first A-4 showed up and a year later all the t-33 were gone. A great duty Stationed to be assigned at with a lot of great people !!!1-815-459-5005
